Investment arbitration is one of the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) mechanisms, which is often the last resort to resolve major investment disputes involving state or state entities. Given the nature of involved parties and disputes, “investment” arbitration has unique features that are different from ordinary international “commercial” arbitration, both procedurally and substantively. It is essential for companies and legal professionals who are involved in business activities in foreign countries to understand its particularities, including when and under what conditions an investor can use such a dispute resolution mechanism and what are the advantages and consequences of its use.
